Enrichment is a narrowly permitted cellaring measure for the improvement of must or wine. Without compensation for the lack of alcohol, some wines would be poorly preserved. In which wines this addition of sucrose is allowed and under what conditions is regulated by law very detailed and differentiated, in order to limit the enrichment to the absolutely necessary level and to avoid abuses. For some years, enrichment has also been allowed by concentrating or medium grape must concentrate.

expansion

The expansion is the maturation process of the wine after the wine fermentation , but before the bottling of the wine. The wine is ready after fermentation but not yet edible. The ripening process is nothing more than the storage of the wine under controlled supply of oxygen. This can be done in wood barrels (oxidative removal) or in stainless steel (reductive removal).

frozen grapes © DWI

High quality dessert wine. The grapes must be frozen during harvesting and pressing (at least -7 ° Celsius). The water released from the berry cells freezes, the berry juice is concentrated, thereby increasing the must weight (an ice wine from Rheinhessen must have at least 120 ° Oechsle ). High-risk extraction (lower yield, risk of loss, with premature thawing unwanted "Frost taste"), therefore high-paid rarity.

bottling

The bottler must be indicated on the label. This can be a winery or the grower himself. In the second case, the term "producer bottling" is allowed if the winegrower himself harvested the grapes, processed them into wine and then bottled them.

If the yield within Rheinhessen (eg between hills and Rhine terraces) or even within a district in a year is very different (for example, caused by frosts or hail or vine pests in some Wingerten, but not in others: full fall, half of autumn), then this arouses the envy of winemakers, who are disadvantaged by nature. She (not really the fall, he only sets the cause) are then "envious."
